         Autograph letter signed, to the Duchess of Aveiro.

      Agaña (Mariana Islands), 25 April 1684. Folio, 4 pp., manuscript in ink on paper, about 1500 words, written in a neat hand; in fine condition preserved in a bookform case by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. An exceptionally interesting manuscript, in which Father Solorzano, a Jesuit missionary in the Mariana Islands, gives news of the work accomplished by the Mariana Islands Mission, and discusses plans for the missionaries to explore and evangelise the southern continent. The plan is clearly reminiscent of Quiros' memorials about seventy years earlier.In the 1660s Spanish Jesuit missionaries set out to colonise the Mariana Islands, which until then had been called the Ladrones - named thus by Magellan for the thievery of the native inhabitants. Father Solorzano was one of the earliest casualties in what became a vicious struggle between the Spanish settlers and the native peoples of the islands: three months after the date of this letter he was killed in a skirmish and became one of the first martyrs.'Meanwhile, Duchess Maria d'Aveiro, who had already more or less adopted the mission, saw to it that the necessary flow of ducats was continued from Madrid to the Marianas. She was repaid with abundant letters full of detailed information on the Church's progress in those regions. Her archives, which must have been a historian's goldmine, contained many manuscripts dealing with ecclesiastical and colonial affairs. In 1923, however, they were sold to Maggs Brothers and subsequently dispersed...' (Francis X. Hezel).This is one of that small series of letters written by Solorzano to the mission's patron the Duchess of Aveiro, sold by Maggs Brothers in their famous catalogue Australia and the South Seas of 1927. This specific letter was item 52 in the catalogue, which summarised the manuscript thus:'Father Solorzano tells how supplies for the Mariana Islands had been delayed by storms, but that the people of Manila had sent help to them under the command of Don Damian de Esplaña. The garrison had been away in the island of Rota, preparing the conquest of the island of Zaypan, and on its return voyage had nearly been lost in a great storm together with the governor and various friendly Indians, in all some three hundred persons.' "Added to this anxiety was another... which was that the bilander which was moored to the harbour with nine cables, broke away during the gale, and was finally smashed to pieces on the reefs off the shore, thereby destroying our hope of exploring the southern islands which lead to the unknown Austral lands and are the goal of our endeavours".'The writer goes on to tell how they had tried to obtain other boats for the purpose of exploring the islands in the South, and that the Governor having died Esplaña had been nominated in his stead...'We have been unable to trace whether this proposed expedition ever set sail'. (Maggs, catalogue 491, item 52, £52 10s).As various publications of the period attest, the Spanish and especially the colonists in Mexico continued to see the proposals of Quiros for the evangelisation and annexation of the southern land as a real possibility. In 1669 for example, Father Luis de San Vitores' Memorial, printed in Mexico, renewed Quiros' call (and quoted from him extensively) to lobby for the consolidation of a mission in the Mariana Islands as a stepping-stone to the colonization and conversion of the "Southern or Austral Islands"

         Supplementum defectus geometria Cartesianae circa inventionem locorum" [Joh. Bernoulli, pp. 264-269] WITH [Two other papers] WITH Notatiuncula ad acta decemb. 1695 [Leibniz, pp. 45-47] in Acta Eruditorum Anno M DC XCVI, 1696

      FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF JOHANN BERNOULLI'S FAMOUS BRACHISTOCHRONE PROBLEM (sometimes called the Brachistochrone challenge). The Brachistochrone (Greek for 'shortest' and 'time) problem itself was one of the earliest examples of a class of problem now known as the calculus of variations. By the 19th century, thanks to Lagrange among others, all fundamental laws of nature could be formulated in terms of the calculus of variations - a kind of universal language of physics. Bernoulli issued his mathematical challenge in the context of the argument between Newton and Leibniz over who first invented the calculus, the mathematical study of change. While Newton, save for a small notice, made something of a secret of his discovery of fluxions, Leibniz had published his calculus in 1684. By 1695, he and his student, Johann Bernoulli, had developed the calculus into a magnificent tool for solving an array of problems. Bernoulli and Leibniz, however, were curious about how much Newton really knew. Together they devised a test, the Brachistochrone problem, confident that only a mathematician who knew the calculus could solve it. Following the custom of the time, they published it. The problem read as follows: "Let two points A and B be given in a vertical plane. To find the curve that a point M, moving on a path AMB , must follow such that, starting from A, it reaches B in the shortest time under its own gravity" (ibid). Johann added that this curve is not a straight line, but a curve well known to geometers. Wanting to lure Newton, Bernoulli introduced his challenge as follows: "I, Johann Bernoulli, address the most brilliant mathematicians in the world. Nothing is more attractive to intelligent people than an honest, challenging problem, whose possible solution will bestow fame and remain as a lasting monument. Following the example set by Pascal, Fermat, etc., I hope to gain the gratitude of the whole scientific community by placing before the finest mathematicians of our time a problem which will test their methods and the strength of their intellect. If someone communicates to me the solution of the proposed problem, I shall publicly declare him worthy of praise" (Bernoulli, Acta 1696, p. 264). The solution to the Brachistochrone problem was a segment of a cycloid and it was solved by Leibniz, Newton (absent a proof), von Tschirnhaus, l'Hôpital and both Bernoullis. "Among the solutions, the two by the Bernoulli brothers were of particular importance. Johann had ingeniously reformulated the challenge as a problem belonging to optics, i.e., the bending of a light ray through a transparent nonuniform media, and applied Fermat's principle of least time. He thus demonstrated the fundamental parallel between geometric optics and point mechanics, which would lead to the work of W.R. Hamilton in the 1830's. The solution by Jacob also contains a general principle, namely, that a curve which constitutes a maximum or minimum as a whole must also possess this property in the infinitesimal - the fundamental principle of the calculus of variations" (DSB). Two of the solutions would be of significant import: one, Johann's own, because it would present the first example of the optical-mechanical analogy, and his brother Jakob's because it represented an important early step in the calculus of variations in that he realized that the problem itself was of a new type, the variable being a function (upon which, not incidentally, Lagrangian mechanics is based). ALSO PRESENT ARE OTHER PAPERS OF SIGNIFICANCE: Four by Jakob Bernoulli: "Observatiuncula ad ea quaenupero mense novembri de Dimensionibus Curvarum leguntur" WITH "Constructio Generalis omnium Curvarum transcendentium ope simplicioris Tractoriae et Logarithmicae", WITH "Problema Beaunianum universalius conceptum", WITH "Complanatio Superficierum Conoidicarum et Sphaeroidicarum" AND two more by Johann Bernoulli "Demonstratio Analyticea et Syntetica fuae Constructionis Curvae Beaunianae" WITH "Tetragonismus universalis Figurarum Curvilinearum per Construitionem Geometricam continuo appropinquantem" AND two by Tschirnhaus "Intimatio singularis novaeque emendationis Artis Vitriariae" WITH "Responsio ad Observationes Dnn. Bernoulliorum, quae in Act. Erud. Mense Junio continentur" WITH "Additio ad Intimationem de emendatione artis vitriariae". CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig: Grosse & Gleditsch. Octavo (slightly trimmed by a conservator at the top margin; no loss whatsoever and if one didn't know it wouldn't be evident). [4], 604 [inclusive of errata], 2. 9 copperplates.

         The Anatomy of Humane Bodies Epitomized Wherein All the Parts of Man's Body, with Their Actions and Uses, Are Succinctly Described, According to the Newest Doctrine of the Most Accurate and Learned Modern Anatomists. The Second edition.

      Angel & Crown, St Paul's Churchyard: J. Heptinstall, for Thomas Flesher, 1684. Second edition, small thick octavo, pp (14), 590, with the imprimatur leaf, some age-toning and thumbing throughout, a little light staining in places, 16 anatomical plates (of which one is small and folding, repaired at one of the folds), a small neat name and address dated 1954 on the front endpaper, contemporary mottled calf, a little worn, neatly and sympathetically rebacked by Temple Bookbinders. Still an attractive copy of a scarce work. [Thomas Gibson, MD, 1647-1722, was born at Bampton in Westmorland. He graduated doctor of medicine at Leyden, 20th August, 1675, and was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 26th June, 1676. He is stated in the Annals of the College of Physicians to have been created doctor of medicine by the archbishop of Canterbury, 16th May, 1663 (age 16), and to have been admitted ad eundem, at Cambridge, 5th October, 1671. He was admitted an Honorary Fellow of the College of Physicians 30th September, 1680. Because he was a presbyterian he was removed from the list of Fellows when the college received a new charter under James II in 1687'. He was reinstated after the Glorious Revolution in 1688 when William and Mary came to the throne. He was physician-general to the army 1718-19. His second wife, Elizabeth, was the sixth daughter of Richard Cromwell, briefly Lord Protector (1658-1659)), the son of Oliver Cromwell. His book Anatomy of Humane Bodies epitomized went through eight editions, between 1682-1737, the first being published anonymously. It was a best seller. It was based on a revision of Alexander Read's Manuall of Anatomy (1634), which Gibson acknowledges, and in English, instead of Latin which had been obligatory before censorship and permission from the Stationers Company disappeared during the civil war and interregnum. The beautiful illustrations are taken from Vesalius's anatomical drawings.]. Second edition. Full-Leather. Good.

A small neat Library stamp, 'Duplicate Trin. Coll. Cam. 1859' on verso of Errata page athe the rear of volume one. A really fine crisp copy. Decorated by vignette of Sheldonian on title pages and by initials. A three volume collection of medieval English, Scottish and Welsh chronicles in the original Latin, going back as far as the De Excidio of the sixth century British monk, Gildas. Some are here printed from the manuscript for the first time: ' Ex vetustis Codicibus MSS. nunc primum in lucem editi.' The contents include: The Chronicle of Ingulfus of Croyland and its continuation, the Chronicle of Melrose, (Scotland), the Annals of Burton Abbey, and of Margam Abbey (Glamorgan), the Salisbury Chronicle of Thomas Wikes, the Annals of Waverley, the Itinerary of Richard I in the Holy Land, the Capture of Damietta (Egypt), the Chronicle of Walter of Hemingford, Guisborough, the History and Letters of Gildas, Stephen of Ripon, the Life of St. Wilfrid, Nennius, The History of Britain, the Chronicle of St. Neots, partly based on John Asser, the Polychronicon of Ranulf Higden of Chester, William of Malmesbury, the Antiquity of Glastonbury and Book V of the Deeds of the English Bishops, the History of Ramsey Abbey and of the Church of Ely, the Chronicle of John of Wallingford, the History of the Kings of the Britons by Ralph de Diceto, the History of the Scots by John of Fordun and Alcuin's poem on York. Some of these texts are extracts selected from longer works. At the end is an Appendix of Greek and Latin descriptions of Britain (Greek texts are included with Latin translations), some extracts from Domesday Book, starting with the entry for Dover, a list of Latin place names and their English equivalents and notes, including a list of Anglo-Saxon kings. The first volume was edited by William Fulman under the patronage of John Fell, classical scholar and Bishop of Oxford (1625-86), who, as curator of the Sheldonian Theatre, had the charge of the Oxford University Press located there. He perhaps holds responsibility for the high quality of the typesetting of the series, which significantly depicts the Sheldonian on the title pages. The whole three volume compilation, however, is generally linked with the name of the editor of the last two volumes, Thomas Gale, F.R.S. (c.1635-1702), Dean of York and antiquary. The ESTC has further details about the relationship between the three volumes as indicated in the half titles and lists of contents. The set was held in Trinity College, Cambridge until 1859 when it was apparently discarded as a duplicate. At this stage it may have come into the ownership of a private individual who commissioned the handsome high quality binding by Francis Bedford (1799-1863), a leading London bookbinder.

He lived consecutively in Paris, St. Martins, London (c. 1710), The Hague (c. 1721) and Amsterdam (c. 1728). He is best known as a Dutch cartographer and more specifically for his cartographic contribution in the seminal seven volume Atlas Historique, published in Amsterdam between 1705 and 1720. Innovative for its time, the Atlas Historique combined fine engraving and artwork with scholarly studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. Some scholarship suggests that the Atlas Historique was not exclusively compiled by Henri Chatelain, as is commonly believed, but rather was a family enterprise involving Henri, his father Zacharie and his brother, also Zacharie.

         Een Christins reyse na de eeuwigheyt. (...). Vertaald uit het Engels. Amsterdam, Gijsbert de Groot Keur, 1754.

      12°: A-L 12 M 6, gepag.: 269 [3] pp. Titelpagina in houtsnede. Ooorspr. karton. Lit.: Witsen Geysbeek II p.105 Vervolg op 'De Christenreis'. In dit tweede deel beschrijft Bunyan de zinnebeeldige tocht van Christiana en haar kinderen naar de hemelse zaligheid. Zij hebben het een stuk gemakkelijker dan Christen, omdat die op zijn reis te gelijk de bane eerst moest breken en daarom de allerhardste strijd uytstaan. 'Een Christins reyse' (eerste Engelse druk 1684) heeft bij lange na niet de bekendheid gekregen van de zes jaar eerder verschenen 'Pilgrim's progress'. De op de titelpagina met A.E.C. aangeduide vertaler is Albert Ebbo Crous, die door Witsen Geysbeek wordt weggezet als een Groninger rijmer die in 1721 een allerellendigst prulwerk, genaamd Josephs droev' en bly-einde4, 398, in het allerplatste Groninger dialect [heeft] geschreven; plomper taal is misschien nimmer in eenig tooneelstuk gevoerd. De eerste druk van Crous' vertaling was in 1723 in Groningen verschenen bij Seerp Bandsma. Deze uitgave is zoals veel volksboekjes gedrukt in gotische letter; vooraf gaat een drempelvers van R.A.Cr. van Stalberg. De titelplaat, die de berg toont die moet worden beklommen om de Hemelse Stad te bereiken, is midden in het boekje nogmaals afgedrukt. L1839

         Bibliotheca anti-trinitariorum, sive catalogus scriptorium [With] Historia reformationis Polonicae, in qua tum reformatorum, tum antitrinitariorum origo

      Johann Aconius [Henricus Wetstein]: Freistadt [Amsterdam] 1684 - Small octavo. Modern brown cloth, leather spine label. [16], 296,[16], 304 pages. The Historia lacking the Addenda & Emendata. Pencil and contemporary ink marginalia. Worming to gutter margins throughout, affecting text. Lubieniczki’s Historia is an account of the Polish Reformation from its origins in the 16th century up till the expulsion of the Brethren from Rakow (1638). In a review of the 1995 English translation Paul W. Knoll says that this work is “a comprehensive treatment of an extraordinarily complex movement. It is unique in Polish historiography and in some ways unmatched by any other confessional history.” [See Sixteenth Cent. Journ. XXVIII/2 (1997) p. 568]. [VD17 - 23: 237280Q; Graesse IV, p. 270; Bibliographia Sociniana 2069]. This copy is bound with Christoph Sandius’s "Bibliotheca anti-trinitariorum" (1684). pp. [16], 296. Contents include an Antitrinitarian bibliography and a collection of important historical documents. [VD17 - 23: 237261K; Graesse VI, p. 263; Bibliographia Sociniana 3116].

         ACTS AND MONUMENTS OF MATTERS MOST SPECIAL AND MEMORABLE HAPPENING IN THE CHURCH WITH AN UNIVERSAL HISTORY OF THE SAME

      1684 FOXE'S BOOK OF MARTYRS,THE *Ninth Edition* CONSIDERED THE BEST EDITION DUE TO ITS SIZE AND COMPLETENESS OF CONTENT In 3 LARGE FOLIO VOLUMES. Measuring 15 ½" x 10" x 8 ½" thick combined.Divided Into 12 BOOKS Plus THE CONTINUATION And THE TABLE Covering CHRISTIAN MARTYRDOMS From 1 A.D. To 1621 A.D. Including Over 2,700 PAGES And DOZENS OF GRUESOME ENGRAVINGS ! [Wing F2036; ESTC R3576].HISTORYJohn Foxe's Book of Martyrs has been called "The most important Christian work ever printed outside of the Bible itself." It documents the martyrdom of all of history's recorded saints from the original Apostles of the First Century, to the early 17th Century. Perhaps most famous for its many graphic woodcut illustrations showing the gruesome methods of execution and torture used against those who gave their lives for the truth of God's Word. In three tall leather volumes, over 2,700 pages, this Edition (9th) is considered to be the best because it includes the totality of Foxe's work!Also known by its formal name, "Foxe's Acts and Monuments of the Christian Church." The books you may have seen in Christian bookstores that claim to be "Foxe's Book of Martyrs" actually only contain FOUR PERCENT of the text that this included here in this authentic 9th edition. They touch on only the more "famous saints"... and typically offer few or none of the magnificent illustrations. The other 96% of the text, and all of the famous illustrations, are "edited out".John Foxe is the most respected of all Christian historians. Foxe also contributed to the production of the original Geneva Bible along with John Knox, under the protection of John Calvin in Geneva Switzerland... fleeing the persecution of Catholic Queen "Bloody" Mary. Foxe's level of scholarship and accuracy is without equal, and his woodcut illustrations make no use of censorship in their detail. Foxe's Book of Martyrs is the ultimate documentary of Christian Martyrdom.RECENTLY AND BEAUTIFULLY REBACKED IN SYMPATHETIC BROWN LEATHER.

         Statua humana circulatoria (22. Nov. 1683: pp.338-351, 2 Taf.).

      Journal des Scavans, 11. - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre le Grand, M.DC.LXXXIV (1684), 404, 18 pp., 12 z.T. gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband d.Zt. First Edition!The first material model of the blood circulation was produced by the German Salomon Reisel (1625-1701)."Let's examine Reisel's Statua more closely, probably the most spectacular item in the list. As it appears from his 1693 essay in Miscellanea curiosa, unlike Jacques Vaucanson with his duck, Reisel wished to build the Statua but he did not actually do so rather, he discussed the most appropriate materials for its construction, such as the skeleton of wood or iron, the blood vessels near the heart of elder- tree, and, as Luigi Belloni has emphasized, the pineal gland of conical glass or crystal held by a silk thread inside a spherical glass globe. Reisel's remarkable plates show the kidneys, bladder, sphincter, penis, and larynx. Reisel discussed digestion and the filtration of urine but his primary aim was to convince the skeptics of the truth of the circulation of the blood, which he illustrated with the detail of blood squirting out of openings in the foot and hand. It would be reductive to take Malpighi's examples as mere marvels or even instantiations of anatomical structures. It has not been sufficiently appreciated that Malpighi framed his examples as part of a general reflection on pathology as well as physiology, thus extending the notion of nature's uniformity from machines to organs and from healthy to diseased states. Malpighi's anatomical publications and medical consultations display his chymical and mechanical thinking in understanding many of the operations described by Reisel's machine and of the related diseases. In De polypo cordis, for example, he reported several experiments based on aspersing different chemical on blood poured in a vessel in order to ascertain their properties. Malpighi was especially concerned with the change of color and fluidity of blood, arguing that those chemicals making the blood more fluid would be potentially effective against affections decreasing the blood's fluidity, such as the plague. His experiments pointed to a therapy, though one none of use would be eager to test. Similarly, in a medical consultation of 29 March 1687 for a case of gout, he sought to explain what happens inside the body, the cause of the disease being an excess of acids in the chyle. Then he also stated: "All this can be seen in proportion also mechanically mixing spirit of vitriol, or another acid that is especially austere, with different fluids." In this passage Malpighi used the term "mechanically" rather broadly, in conjunction with a chymical operation. It is especially significant from our perspective that he reproduced in vitro processes occurring inside the body in order to investigate disease and to devise suitable therapies. This consultation echoes Malpighi's description of Reisel's Statua, thus providing strong evidence that he envisaged it as a material device and interpreted it - unlike Reisel himself - from a pathological and medical standpoint as well." Machines and the Body between Anatomy and Pathology Domenico Bertoloni MeliReisei, Salomon. "Mediziner. * 24. 10.1625 Warmbrunn (Schlesien), t 21.11.1701 Stuttgart studierte 1645-52 in Straßburg und Basel, praktizierte 1652-55 in Ottweiler bei Saarbrücken und war 1655-60 Hofarzt in Saarbrücken unter Graf Johann Ludwig von Nassau-Saarbrücken sowie Erzieher des ältesten Grafensohnes. 1657 wurde er in Basel promoviert. 1660-68 war er Leibarzt in Buchsweiler unter Graf Friedrich Kasimir von Hanau, dann Hof- und Leibarzt in Hanau. 1674-79 Stadtphysikus in Worms. 1679-1701 Leibarzt und Rat der württembergischen Herzoge in Stuttgart. 1674 wurde er in die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina aufgenommen.

         Homo et eius partes figuratus & symbolicus, anatomicus, rationalis, moralis, mysticus, politicus, & legalis, collectus et explicatus cum figuris.Augsburg & Dillingen, Johann Caspar Bencard, 1695. 2 volumes bound as 1. Large folio (37 x 23 cm). With a finely engraved emblematic frontispiece by the Augsburg engraver Leonhard Heckenauer (1655-1704), 2 title-pages with the same large engraved brooding chicken emblem and 42 engraved emblems in decorative cartouches in the text (plate size mostly 14 x 13 cm, but that on p. 232 of vol. 1 3.5 x 8.5 cm) perhaps also by Heckenauer. Contemporary vellum.

      Caillet 9948 ("unique in its genre"); Landwehr, German emblem books 530; Praz 490 note; R. Raybould, Emblemata 29. First and only Latin edition (translated by Matthias Honcamp) of a truly unique emblematic and philosophical work, originally published in Italian in 1684 as L'uomo e sue parti, figurato e simbolico , with 42 engraved emblems revolving around the human body and body parts. It describes and depicts the human body in its details and in its entirety in every aspect conceivable. The book also discusses magic, in the strict sense of the word, revealing many marvellous secrets, such as the occult properties of saliva, urine, sperm, etc."The erudition demonstrated by the author is really quite extraordinary" (Raybould) including metoposcopy (the interpretation of facial wrinkles for divination!). An appendix adds short accounts of several subjects, including "hieroglyphia" and "androgyni", along with short works by other authors: Lactantius Firmianus's "De opificio Dei", Coelius Rhodiginus on humanity, and a long "Ode" to humanity: "Considerationes patheticae de creatione, & dignitate hominis" based on Trismegistus, Plato, Coelius and other ancient sources.With a faint marginal water stain and a couple small rust spots in the paper, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding shows a few scratches, cuts and stains, small cracks at the head and foot of the hinges and 1 sewing support broken at the hinge, but is still in good condition. A fascinating emblem book for both text and imagery (some of it now also humorous), and an impressive piece of book production.

         Statua humana circulatoria (22. Nov. 1683: pp.338-351, 2 Taf.).

      - Journal des Scavans, 11. - A Amsterdam, Chez Pierre le Grand, M.DC.LXXXIV (1684), 404, 18 pp., 12 z.T. gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband d.Zt. First Edition! The first material model of the blood circulation was produced by the German Salomon Reisel (1625-1701). "Let's examine Reisel's Statua more closely, probably the most spectacular item in the list. As it appears from his 1693 essay in Miscellanea curiosa, unlike Jacques Vaucanson with his duck, Reisel wished to build the Statua but he did not actually do so; rather, he discussed the most appropriate materials for its construction, such as the skeleton of wood or iron, the blood vessels near the heart of elder- tree, and, as Luigi Belloni has emphasized, the pineal gland of conical glass or crystal held by a silk thread inside a spherical glass globe. Reisel's remarkable plates show the kidneys, bladder, sphincter, penis, and larynx. Reisel discussed digestion and the filtration of urine but his primary aim was to convince the skeptics of the truth of the circulation of the blood, which he illustrated with the detail of blood squirting out of openings in the foot and hand. It would be reductive to take Malpighi's examples as mere marvels or even instantiations of anatomical structures. It has not been sufficiently appreciated that Malpighi framed his examples as part of a general reflection on pathology as well as physiology, thus extending the notion of nature's uniformity from machines to organs and from healthy to diseased states. Malpighi's anatomical publications and medical consultations display his chymical and mechanical thinking in understanding many of the operations described by Reisel's machine and of the related diseases. In De polypo cordis, for example, he reported several experiments based on aspersing different chemical on blood poured in a vessel in order to ascertain their properties. Malpighi was especially concerned with the change of color and fluidity of blood, arguing that those chemicals making the blood more fluid would be potentially effective against affections decreasing the blood's fluidity, such as the plague. His experiments pointed to a therapy, though one none of use would be eager to test. Similarly, in a medical consultation of 29 March 1687 for a case of gout, he sought to explain what happens inside the body, the cause of the disease being an excess of acids in the chyle. Then he also stated: "All this can be seen in proportion also mechanically mixing spirit of vitriol, or another acid that is especially austere, with different fluids." In this passage Malpighi used the term "mechanically" rather broadly, in conjunction with a chymical operation. It is especially significant from our perspective that he reproduced in vitro processes occurring inside the body in order to investigate disease and to devise suitable therapies. This consultation echoes Malpighi's description of Reisel's Statua, thus providing strong evidence that he envisaged it as a material device and interpreted it - unlike Reisel himself - from a pathological and medical standpoint as well."
